Hi Yovaneth. Best of luck with your other interests and thanks for all your contributions to Faerun over the years.

If other modders want to continue development on FFT, including porting for EE, bug fixes and possibly new content, they would need your permission to release new versions.

Would you mind stating your position on this?

Yovaneth has given me permission to make an Enhanced Edition port of Fishing for Trouble, so I will be starting on that over the next few days.

I am working on the rest of the german translation. We should stay in contact.

I detected the first error! In BG2EE the village Porthpentyrch appears not on the standard Woldmap of BGEE.

lib/patches.tpa adds an incompatible (and duplicate) script action to the ACTION.IDS in Enhanced Edition games. It may cause mods installed afterwards to fail the installation process because of a missing reference to DIR.IDS.

Updated FFT to 3.1.1 - will skip patching ACTION.IDS for EE game type

https://github.com/B...ases/tag/v3.1.1

Haven't investigated the report above about the area not appearing on worldmap.

Gerri: Thanks! How is the German translation coming along?

Only in SoDs games... it has a which just needs a bit of a hand holding ...
ACTION_IF (NOT GAME_IS ~bgee bg2ee eet~) BEGIN // only if not EE
...
Erhm should the .ids patches not have double check for the .ids 'es... aka if you have:
APPEND ~ACTION.IDS~ ~337 ReallyForceSpellPointRES(S:RES*,P:Target*)~
UNLESS ~337 ReallyForceSpellPointRES(S:RES\*,P:Target\*)~
It should actually:
APPEND ~ACTION.IDS~ ~337 ReallyForceSpellPointRES(S:RES*,P:Target*)~
UNLESS (~337~ OR ~ReallyForceSpellPointRES(S:RES\*,P:Target\*)~)

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

I'm testing it right now but I can't seem to find lady ravenhair's place in the Government district, I've looked everywhere using ctrl 4 so i'm not sure if i'm being dense or something is amiss.

There is a new area Government West added by the mod (Did you select the add areas to worldmap option on install?)

You can C:MoveToArea("ys0390")

It should be between Temple and Government, unless a bug in the mod does not RevealAreaOnMap at the right time. You could check in NI on your worldmap if the area exists there.

Thanks :) How do I check that on NI? I tried to guess with no success.

The very last menu point of the NI lists is WMP - there are your worldmaps, In EET only the one called worldmap.wmp is used for all of the game.

A .jpg would have been so much better:

Well, the map appeared after I tried to leave it after I teleported to it so I guess it's the RevealAreaOnMap that had an issue.

 

By the way, has anyone else tried it yet? The maps from the mods have huge artifacts.

Would you please define this a little better ? I predict this to be the "windspeed" problem, but ... yes, that sounds odd, I know, but it's what it's referred as.

But it could be so much else too, so.

It seems to be squares of another part of the map. I can't take a screenshot because accessing any menu or alt tabbing fixes it until it reappears and it only happens in full screen, so it'll be a photo of my screen sorry.

I see similar effects - and also these dotted lines sometimes that seem to follow the underlying tiles. It happens randomly just like you describe. It also happens in some other maps from other mods. Obviously something to do with the other file formats used by EET.
